Downey-Franchuk, Andrea J.
Society has become increasingly aware of the harmful effects that the disposal of chemical waste products have on the environment and human health. Public information is central to the development of a responsible waste management plan. The activities contained in this guide are organized in sequence from kindergarten to grade 12, and provide teachers with a selection of activities to help increase their students' awareness of the problems associated with hazardous wastes. Topics range from acquainting students with waste management issues such as trash, litter and recycling principles, to examining waste disposal technologies and exploring complex, interdisciplinary social issues. Each of the 27 activities includes the purpose of the activity, references, a list of materials, procedures, and the source of the activity. (CW)
